Once, he was the feared assassin Hitokiri Battosai. Now he is Rurouni Kenshin, a wanderer who traded his killing blade for a reverse-edge sakabato and vowed to protect all those within his sight.
Kenshin's new life brings him to Kyoto, where he joins the Kamiya Kasshin-ryu dojo to learn the art of "swords that give life." Along with his fellow apprentice Yahiko, Kenshin trains under their kind but demanding instructor, Kaoru. But the peaceful routine of the dojo is disrupted when Tae, a waitress at Akabeko restaurant, asks for their help.
A regular at the restaurant has lost his master's precious book, and he'll be kicked out in the street if he can't recover it. The simple case of a missing book soon becomes a dangerous mystery as Kenshin and his friends are tangled in deep secrets and dark plots!
